tv   Today in the Bay  NBC  August 31, 2015 5:00am-6:01am PDT

5:00 am
i'm laura garcia-cannon. let's get a check of that forecast. it was a gorgeous weekend. in store for a nice week, kari? is it. >> it will be a great week. in fact, getting even cooler over the next few days. today not so bad. 60 degrees now in san francisco, in the north bay at 53 degrees. today's highs will be up to the 70s and 80s across most of the bay and the north bay up to 85, the south bay 82 degrees. we will take a look at all of the microclimates and what to expect over the next few days coming up. let's see how the roads are flowing with mike. overall great, but we have two big slow downs. one in the south bay, not here, this is 101 at 680, but just a little farther north, northbound 101 around old bay shore. you see the speed sensors jamming up around 880. traffic break because of a crash and a couple vehicles have to be moved to the shoulder. this is backing things up at the 101/880 interchange. meanwhile, the rest of your way is moving slowly, including the bay bridge toll plaza but the big concern for the morning
5:01 am
is southbound 880, jackknifed rig over near hegenberger. we see slowing kout of the coliseum. we begin with breaking news. classes canceled after a destructive overnight fire in the south bay. this is happening just as the new school year is getting underway. it firefighters right now at loma prieta school are mopping up what's left of that fire. >> "today in the bay" damian trujillo is there live now. damian, investigators are looking into the cause of this fire. >> reporter: yeah, the sheriff's office is calling it suspicious at this point. right now firefighters are still dousing the hot spots here. this is the community center portion of the school here. so none of the classrooms were affected from what we understand. firefighters will be here for much of the day. now, according to the superintendent the community center, again, is is the one that received most of the damage. the main focus for firefighters was to save the gymnasium next
5:02 am
to the community center. the buildings are in between loma prieta elementary and ct english middle school. those schools seem undamaged at this point but the district doesn't want the children to be around all the heavy equipment that will remain here for several hours. there is also santa cruz county sheriff's substation that was destroyed in this fire. investigators are looking for the official cause of this, a fire that the sheriff's office is calling, again, sus is spishs. >> we were lucky that one of our local battalion chiefs was the initial attack incident commander and he is actually till here at scene and he is doing the investigation. >> reporter: the call came in just before midnight. so far investigators haven't ruled out anything as the potential cause, but again, sheriff's sergeant shear of the santa cruz county sheriff's office says this fire does appear to be suspicious. we're live in the santa cruz mountains, i'm damian trujillo,
5:03 am
"today in the bay." thank you, damian. well, police in palo alto have a second indecent exposure to investigate. the latest happened friday in the downtown area. police say a woman was walking o on university avenue when she noticed a man following her. she got into her car and drove off, but when she stopped blocks away the man appeared, knocked on her passenger window and then exposed himself. >> it does concern me because in this area there's a lot of traffic and a lot of families come down here so i wouldn't want anyone to, you know, have a bad experience with that. >> police are also looking for another hand who exposed himself to a woman walking a dog at monroe park on miller avenue tuesday night. police have a sketch of that suspect. while both men are believed to be about the same age, police are not saying if the two incidents are related joot the sanctuary city debate ramping up again in the south bay. santa clara county leaders are going to talk about whether to
5:04 am
give ice a 48-hour heads up about the release of serious or violent inmates. "today in the bay" kris sanchez joining us now. this debate fueled by the killing of kate steinle on san francisco's pier 14. >> reporter: definitely a ripple effect. the last time they talked about the county's sanctuariel policy stemming from the case of juan francisco lopez-sanchez in san francisco there was passion fat protests from community members. about 80 people interrupted the santa clara county supervisor's heating for about 15 minutes before they were ushered out holding signs against ice a, the immigration customs enforcement agency, when community activist says ice breaks up families and leaves undocumented immigrants vulnerable to crime because they don't want to report it. sheriff laurie smith has said serious and violent offenders should not be protected from deportation. here are those comments from last week. >> we fear that the community who already may have distrust of calling police had in cases of crime will not be calling people
5:05 am
in domestic violence situations, will not be calling authorities for fear of deportation. >> i to honestly believe the people who are serious and violent felonies that have been convicted, we should at least notify ice if they are in this country illegally. >> santa clara county and many other sanctuary cities are reexamining their sanctuary policies after the death of kate steinle on pier 14 in july. her accused killer is an undocumented immigrant with a long list of convictions and deportations. today's meeting is at 10:30 this morning. it's the bail and release work group, this they make the recommendations regarding release to the full supervisory board. now, the group debating the sanctuary issue is going to recommend the policy for is that full board, but once again, santa clara county is one of the first sanctuary communities in the nation, laura. >> one to continue to watch. it is 5:05. scary moments for passengers on board two southwest airlines planes at oakland international
5:06 am
airport. this is what passengers saw on board. the very tip of the plane's wing broken off. airport officials tell us a plane headed to orange county was backing away from the gate last night when it clipped the other plane. both are now out of service undergoing maintenance checks. luckily no one was hurt. overnight southwest released a statement saying safety is its number one focus and the airline is now doing an internal review to figure out what went wrong. okay. let's different form of transportation now. watch out if you are heading over the san mateo bridge this had this morning. the chp is warning that high winds right now are hitting that bridge. the chp says that means you should slow down and make sure to leave plenty of space between you and the car in front of you. let's check in with kari. is it a windy start to our day? >> i ail bit of a light breeze out there, but not a lot of wind until later on this afternoon. as we get a live look at san francisco mostly clear skies, we will start to see a few clouds moving in, but a bright and
5:07 am
sunny day, a high of 72 degrees on the embarcadero, palo alto 81 degrees, 84 degrees in los gatos, 83 petaluma. 86 danville expect a life 85 degrees, overall a very nice day, temperatures about average for the end of august. into the next few days it gets even a few degrees cooler. let's see how the commute is moving with mike. the big deal is that we're not really moving very well over here by the oakland coliseum. you see these flares moving you over. what's in the darkness are a couple of trucks. there was a jack miefd big rig and a little bit of a fuel spill and we have you down to two lanes south by right by the coliseum. as you are south of 66 that's what's going on here. the only slow down. san leandro street behind the coliseum is a good alternate. if you jump on anywhere south of 98th you're doing fine. the rest of your bay moves smoothly.
5:08 am
toward the bay bridgenw9ñ= problems but there is a traffic break clearing from the south bay northbound 101. the peninsula at 101 is looking better. bob, you're there to tell you what happened over the weekend. >> reporter: both directions of 101 southbound and northbound in millbrae and burlingame did reopen at 4:00 it this this morning as pg&e was hoping to have happen and what the workers with pg&e were to go over the weekend was reinstalling this. you are looking at a one inch aluminum and steel transmission line, high power transmission line that fell on the freeway as a result of an accident friday night. you might recall that highway 101 was shut down on and off throughout the weekend after construction workers doing work here on the broadway avenue overpass accidentally knocked down one of those transmission towers. that was around 9:30 last night. the road was shut down in both directions from 9:30 until 4:30 saturday afternoon and then again yesterday while pg&e
5:09 am
installed a temporary transmission tower and had to respan 1,500 feet of high voltage power line over the freeway. >> is it possible the highway would have to be shut down again when the permanent tower is put back in? >> until that work is engineered and we have a better idea of what the permanent solution is it would be premature to speculate at this point. >> reporter: so, again, both directions of highway 101 reopened here in millbrae and burlingame, the only closure still the off ramp to the broadway avenue passover, flyover that we are standing at here right now. you will notice there is still a lot of work going on behind me right now, but nothing that requires the freeway being shut down. reporting live here in burlingame, bob redell, "today in the bay." get drivers moving. coming up, new poll numbers spell trouble for both parties' front runners, with a these numbers are saying about the mood of early state voters.

5:14 am
digits. >> what the polls tell me is nobody has any real votes right now. >> people are fed up with washington. they're looking for someone who will stand up to washington. >> reporter: so could at that someone be a republican, a democrat, could that someone be hillary clinton? even though her numbers are slipping, sam and laura, we also saw in that poll that 2/3 of iowa democrats said if she turns out to be the nominee they could support her. >> tracie, its so mice to have you back. thank you very much. president obama is heading to alaska later today in a push for sweeping action on climate change. some of alaska's most awe inspiring sites disappearing right now. alaskan glaciers are melting at an alarming rate according to scientists who say this year alone the average glacier will lose 30 inches of thickness. >> about 25,000 glaciers in alaska and almost all of them are retreating, losing mass and shrinking. >> this marks the last leg of an

5:39 am
spill seems to be the biggest issue as it may have leaked into the soil. no estimate for when they are going to open that. you're jammed southbound 880 high street past the coliseum. eastbound 580 is a great alternate. if you typically cross over the bay bridge you might want to take 92 over there. the good news at least 101 through san bruno and millbrae is open for business. bob, we had a lot of activity over the weekend closing that freeway. what's going on right now this morning for 101 and pg&e and all the activity over there? >> reporter: mike, fortunately the road was reopened at 4:00 this morning as was initially promised, well before the morning commute. so you've got both northbound and southbound highway 101 going through burlingame, millbrae reopened after pg&e was able to restring that high powered transmission line that came down yz weekend. the only closure is the off ramp to the broadway avenue overpass here in burlingame. highway 101 was shut down on and off for most of the weekend,
5:40 am
southbound at millbrae, northbound at anza after a construction crew friday night accidentally mocked one of the transmission towers down sending high voltage power lines on to the freeway, remarkably no one was hurt but the road was shut down from aroundis 9:30 friday night until 4:30 saturday afternoon and then again yesterday. you are looking at the one inch aluminum and steel power transmission line that they had to respan over the pre way. 1,500 feet of this. that's why it took quite a time. it's an undertaking for pg&e, something they know how to do, but of course this being an emergency situation they had to work pretty fast to get that road reopened in i am for the commute which they succeeded in at 4:00 this morning. so if you do have to commute up and down the peninsula, you don't have to worry about 101 being shut down again like it was this weekend. reporting live in burlingame, bob redell, "today in the bay."
